Nursing Home Relocation
Mcil’s Nursing Home Relocation (NHR) program provides Relocation Service Coordination
(RSC) to those who qualify in the metro area. RSC services helps individuals plan and arrange
for the services and supports they need to live in the community. We assist in finding affordable
housing as well as gaining access to needed medical, social and other services and supports
necessary to move to a community-based setting.
Many of our consumers that we start working with have been living in a nursing home for a long
period of time and are very eager to find new housing. They no longer require the level of care
that is provided at the nursing home and want to find a place to live that is less restrictive. We
are able to help these consumers find a new home in the community and live a more independent
life with all of the supports and services they will need.
In 2010 we were able to successfully help 24 individuals find a new home in the community. The
NHR program also provides Transitional Services to those who qualify. Transitional Services
is a program that supplies furniture and basic household items to individuals who are moving
into a new place, such as an assisted living or an independent apartment. Many of our consumers
who are moving out of a nursing home and into the community do not have any furniture or
household items that they will need for their new home, so Transitional Services is designed to
help those individuals start over in their new home. In 2010 we were able to provide 103 people
with Transitional Services.
